    Rocks, and More Rocks

    by where2next Written Jul 14, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Aside from the balancing rock (pictured), I really didn't think that Garden of the Gods was that interesting. There are a lot of advertisements around for this, though if you are pressed for time, I would have this as a low priority.

    Go For the Gold!

    by where2next Written Jul 14, 2004

    An olympic training center is in Colorado Springs. When I was there a tour was available to see the entire campus. I was surprised by the size of the campus - I was expecting it to be much larger. It was not as big because not all olympic events are included at this facility. I will say that like the Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs is a great location for such a facility given its location near the Rockies.

    Garden of Rock and Adventure

    If you like hiking, this is the place to go. I took a small hike, but still saw amazing sights. There were tons of people on the drive, but only a few on the hike. Its beautiful and I definitly recommend it to any hiker.

    Cave lovers must see

    For an adventurous time, take the "Guided Lantern Tour". I missed it and had to take the regular one, but it was still cool. It was about an hour long tour and this is the first cave I'd ever been in where I was in TOTAL CAVE DARKNESS. It's amazing.

    by PelLihi Written Feb 24, 2003

    When you're in the Springs take a walk through downtown Colorado Springs and visit the small cafes and shops. A nice place to hang out and kick back a little bit (especially in fall when the weather is nice).

    US Olympic Training Center is located here. It's pretty neat to go see the Olympians train. I was going to visit to watch the judo, as I'm a judoka myself, and try to possibly train for a while with them. It never materialized, but oh well. Sometime. It's still a neat place and worth a visit.

    The Fine Arts Center is also just south of Cache La Poudre Boulevard and Colorado College on Cascade, a bit farther south than the ANA. It is a nice museum, and is free for CC students and only about $5.00 USD to see some nice artwork.

    The Flying W Ranch is a must, if your timing is right. The show is a buck wagon and great meals like in times past are served.
    It is set against the mountains, the grounds have unique shops to brouse before the show and dinner, it is a must do.

    United States Olympic Training Center is located almost in the center of the Springs. I was lucky to have been there as the torch passed thru the center in 1996, I site I will never forget as all the US athletics passed the torch down the line.
    You may brouse the center and moist is not off limits except some are during the olympic year and then it is sometimes possible to watch certain training take place. There is also a gift shop where Olympic shirts, jackets, etc. can be purchased that is not available anywhere else and at a reasonable price. All money goes back into the programs.

    See the Broadmoor Skating Club 'Fire and Ice' exhibition.
    Fire and Ice' is a weekly exhibition held in the Olympic Arena every Friday night. Groups are divided by level, then skating order is determined by a blind draw. Skaters are encouraged to wear their competition attire and treat it like a normal competition. Who knows you may see a future Olympian - they were great!

    Just an hour south of the Springs is Pueblo, home to the Colorado State Fair. I went to the fair twice. Once to see country band Diamond Rio and the second time to see country star Tim McGraw.
